City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare

This book was hard to put down from the moment I picked it up. The plot was very well orchestrated from beginning to end. I especially found the use of Madam Dorothea clever. I also liked the contrast between Luke and Valentine as father figures and leaders. The love Clary felt for Luke was so real.

All of the characters were believable, distinct, and memorable, and I could picture them vividly. Both the more-than-friends relationship between Clary and Simon and the blossoming romance between Clary and Jace were palpable. But the ending...

Without giving anything away, I just want to say that I don't believe it. I think Valentine is trying to manipulate them and that even Luke and the others are mistaken. I just can't accept the cruel twist, and find it hard to believe that Clary and Jace do...

I hope I'm right as I enter into the world of the second book.
